Recent grant success

University of California, Irvine Chancellor Howard Gillman states:

“Our faculty continues to do a tremendous job of winning research grants, the lifeblood of our research efforts. In just the last couple of months…our renowned Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, known as UCI MIND, received a grant of $47 million from the National Institute on Aging; an interdisciplinary UCI team will receive $10 million from the National Institutes of Health…Clearly, the future of science at UCI is very bright indeed.”

The UCI research team is directed by (seated, from left) Frank LaFerla, Andrea Tenner and Kim Green. Other investigators include (standing, from left) Marcelo Wood, Arthur Lander, Grant MacGregor, Ian Smith, Vivek Swarup, Craig Stark, Andre Obenaus and Ali Mortazavi.
